Tasting notes for the Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Referts" 2010 - Arnaud Ente

  • EYE: The wine displays a brilliant and deep golden yellow color. Its intensity reflects the concentration and maturity of the wine.
  • NOSE: The aromas reveal ripe white-fleshed fruits such as pear and apple, intertwined with hints of citrus and white flowers. Subtle accents of vanilla, fresh butter, and toasted hazelnuts enrich the bouquet, offering a captivating aromatic dimension.
  • MOUTH: The texture is velvety and silky, providing a sensation of smoothness and roundness on the palate. Ripe fruit flavors unfold with elegance, accompanied by notes of honey, toasted bread, and delicate minerals. The lively and well-balanced acidity brings freshness to the overall experience, while the finish is long, persistent, and leaves a delightful sensation of freshly picked fruits.


In short: Arnaud Ente's Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Les Referts" 2010 is a white wine of exceptional elegance and remarkable complexity. Its brilliant golden color, enticing nose, and velvety palate offer a refined gustatory experience. It pairs perfectly with noble fish dishes such as sole meunière, grilled langoustines, or seafood in sauce. It also complements roasted poultry and soft cheese varieties. In terms of aging potential, this wine can be enjoyed now, but it possesses a remarkable aging potential that will allow it to further develop for 5 to 10 years in the cellar, or even longer for those who prefer a more extended evolution. An ideal choice for enthusiasts of exceptional Puligny-Montrachet white wines.

An artist of the vineyard in Meursault


Elected "Man of the Year" by the Bettane & Desseauve wine guide in 2012, Arnaud Ente still deserves the title. According to critic Michel Bettane, his white wines are "the most advanced [...] in the entire world when it comes to Chardonnay." The winemaker, who was also nicknamed the Rising Star of Meursault for a few years, is now considered to be one of the greatest artists of the vineyard in the Côte de Beaune.

With the help of his wife Marie-Odile, his son Pierre, and his two employees, Arnaud Ente takes care of his 4.5 hectares of vineyard the way he would his garden. Although, you need to understand that the man is a true perfectionist (and an inspiration to his brother Benoît). He strives for balance, in all things. Arnaud Ente not only seeks to produce the purest wines possible, he is also constantly trying to find a fragile equilibrium between tension and texture. Acidity and volume.

The concept of precision is very close to his heart. Everything is adjusted and calibrated round the clock... from picking the grapes to pruning the vines. Furthermore, respecting the Burgundy terroir is a real duty for him. Which explains why the yields are extremely low. Of course, Arnaud Ente only uses organic methods in his vineyard (he is a proud recipient of the French "Agriculture Biologique" certification).
